Here you will find links to scans of the University of East Anglia student newspaper Concrete. For three years I wrote for the newspaper, and in my final year I edited the games and technology section named Wired. The newspapers are from newest to oldest, and in some of the issues I edited there are no articles written by me; I left them in so you could see the consistency of my editing skills, and the level of content I commissioned from the staff writers each week. All the sections that do not have a name tied to them are also written by me (I didn’t want to have my name plastered on the regulars if I was the one writing them).
